Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of upscale American fare and drinks at McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon on Ionia Avenue Southwest. This Groupon is valid toward happy hour and game day specials but is not valid toward private events or with other offers.
McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon provides an extensive menu of classic American eats and a well-stocked bar of classically intoxicating drinks in a casual, convivial atmosphere. Start by gobbling wedges of fried provolone ($6.99) while debating later strategy, such as a healthy diversion into an ahi tuna salad ($11.99), or continued decadence in the embrace of a black angus saloon burger ($8.99), topped with cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions. Less meat-oriented individuals and passing plesiosaurs can enjoy baked white cheddar mac and cheese ($7.99) with green onions and diced tomatoes. Desserts are a sweet nightcap to any feast, and include the likes of hot apple pie ($6.99) with vanilla ice cream, and dark chocolate and Baileys mousse ($6.99) with a head crafted to resemble a pint of paradoxically bitter Guinness, a manly alternative to other mousse dishes, which often come topped with hair ribbons and emotion.
The restaurant space at McFadden's is swathed in dark, cozy colors offset by hanging light fixtures, billiards tables, and televisions broadcasting the latest sports games, gaming sports, and gorts spames. Bring along a gaggle of pals or someone else's hard partying grandmother for a delicious and potable evening out. Reservations are recommended Thursday through Saturday.
McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon was rated one of the best reception sites in Grand Rapids by the knot. Although Google Mappers are mixed on the service, four Citysearchers and seven Yelpers give it three stars on average.
- The bartender was kind and told us we could sit anywhere we wanted, even though that meant he had to climb up and down stairs to serve us in our elevated booth. With flatscreen TVs everywhere, even in the booths, we had no trouble watching the game. – Kiarash Z., Yelp
